3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber pour with off-white head. Nose has a wet-hop character but also a caramelly malty sweetness. There is a unique soft malty sweetness along with strong resiny hops and a lingering bitter finish. light body and so surprisingly mellow. Too sweet and sticky to be a top-notch IPA but definitely interesting.

On tap at Triple Rock. It pours yellow with an off white head. The aroma is grainy, dry, and floral. The flavor is very dry and bitter with some aromatic noble hops. Big bitter finish. Nice experiment!
